I think it should be "might be lost and ..." (space after and)

Maybe "But things aren't always that simple."
or "But things aren't always as simple."

So add it:

<p>Support for the 32-bit <em/s390/ port (s390) was discontinued and replaced
with s390x in Jessie (Debian 8.0). Additionally, the ports to IA-64 and

support.

Is it correct/good, to mention the "to" every time? Or can they be removed to
improve readability?

As Justin already said: Wheezy is Debian 7, and Jessie is Debian 8

1. they also need to have fewer release-critical bugs (to avoid doubled "have")
